I am proud that in 🇧🇪 and in most of 🇪🇺 your gender identity does not define you as a person and is a non-issue. I hope that my appointment as Minister and deputy PM can trigger the debate in countries where this is not yet the case. #fighttransphobia

Fixed a couple minor issues with Share on Mastodon.

Interesting. I used to use Jetpack’s Publicize ages ago. And my Mastodon plugin already supports posting entire posts (that is, if they’re short enough), and a form of threading. Requires some filter hook creativity, though.
Jetpack 9.0 will debut a new feature that allows users to share blog posts as Twitter threads in multiples tweets.

There’s ACF and Meta Box, sure. (And then there’s Elementor and Divi. 🤢)
It is [easy] to look at every job as a nail and WordPress as the hammer. Or, even specific plugins[.]

Oh, my. Mastodon’s solved this quite elegantly ages ago: let users choose. (It has also had actually usable image alt text since, uh, forever.)

[F]ederation distributes governance and cost, and can allow us to tackle challenges that we couldn’t overcome without it. […] Viva la federación!
Just threw together https://jan.boddez.net/raspberry-pi, on some of my former RPi “projects.” So I don’t forget. I’ll eventually add some photos (and set up similar pages for my guitars and arcade cabs). I mean, I could blog about all this, one project at a time, but I feel a brochure-like approach is somehow more suited.
Quickly created this WordPress plugin that basically introduces a short-form CPT—well, two, but you don’t necessarily have to use ‘em both—and maps Micropub entries to it. That’s it. How’s this relate to Post Kinds? It doesn’t. I like how it keeps WP Admin (and permalink URLs) really neat and all, but there’s no meta boxes, and no markup gets generated for you. (Want to add, e.g.,
u-in-reply-to in there? Gonna have to do that by hand.) https://github.com/janboddez/indieweb-custom-post-types
Going to stop forwarding replies to the “main thread,” I think. On this site, I mean. Their comment/webmention “renditions” are too often missing markup or images. I mean, unless I fix that. The downside would be that “follow-up replies” are currently only shown on that “main thread.” (Aargh.)
New joystick, button blank where the extra hole used to be. Not perfect, but better.

This here’s probably the best guide to “IndieWebifying” any WordPress theme. Two things: (1) You could definitely use a child theme to do this. (Pro: very few files and very little code. Con: can’t have child theme child themes [in case others would wanna build off your work].) (2) You may wanna check for existing
p-summary elements, like those added by plugins—Micropub—rather than blindly add them to every post.
